Water and Metal

When I used to picture metal cutting, I would always picture incredibly heavy, large machining pieces. Basically the only way I could picture cutting metal was by using metal. However, I later learned that there are other ways to achieve metal cutting, and it is a very interesting process. One option that is becoming increasingly common is water jet cutting. Water metal cutting services are able to form the metals simply by using powerful water jet streams combined with some type of abrasive. Pure water jet streams are another way to form items, however, because metals are so much more difficult and tough, abrasive additions are necessary. And when used correctly, this process is incredibly efficient and effective. Continue reading

The Grand Canyon and Water Cutting

Nature has always fascinated me. The great accomplishments it is able to make in forming the world in which we live. Take for example, the Grand Canyon. Considered to be one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Grand Canyon is a massive canyon located in Arizona in the United States. It is 277 miles long, can be up to 18 miles wide and can reach over a mile deep in some places! So how was such a gigantic and magnificent structure formed? Many probably remember learning about this natural wonder from way back in their elementary school classes. It was formed by a strong and brutal force, water. However, water was not able to do this overnight. The canyon was formed by being carved out by the Colorado River over what scientists believe to be around 17 million years. This was a long project for nature, but when it was done, it left something magnificent. Continue reading

Water Jet Metal Cutting: For Heavy Duty Industries

The major metallic element utilizing industries in our modern day market produce large scale items such as the automotive, aerospace, aviation, marine and manufacturing equipment industries. Numerous manufacturing processes enable them to produce these large metallic products, such as space shuttles, ships, commercial airplanes, semi-trucks, farming equipment like tractors and large drills presses, etc. however, there are many factors that play into which process each industry, or even individual company may choose. As far as expenses and environmental friendliness there is one process that rises above the rest; water jet metal cutting. In essence the same as any water jet cutting process, particularly the high pressure water cutting necessary for such strong materials, water jet metal cutting is excellent for heavy duty industry use. Continue reading
